This is a city park not a rural park. Expect a lot of people but some exclusion. When we went we saw a bunch of turkey's.

Visited here on a football weekend as something to do before an 8 PM OSU game. Nice well-marked trails. Plenty of area for picnics and gatherings available. Convenient location off of I-270.

Love to walk the trails here. Well designated and roomy enough to walk in groups. Different distances makes it work depending on the time you have. The park is wonderful and great for families. Playground is enjoyed by all ages.

I am a member of a walking group and we meet every Tuesday for walking. Sharon Wood Metro Park is popular and busy even in the evenings. Although I only use the walking trail, there are many activities for all ages.

This park is lovely. It is busy and close to a lot of activity, but it has a serene atmosphere. The trails are wonderful. There are lakes, playgrounds, and lots of wild life to experience. It is a lot of fun, relaxing and refreshing. This park is really a gem in this community.

I will admit that Sharon woods is not my favorite of the Franklin County Metro Parks, but it is an enjoyable park to visit. The fall color of course if beautiful. I recommend walking along the lake, or the Spring Creek trail.

This urban park will almost make you forget you are in the city. There is a 3 mile multi-use trail that is very quiet (except one section long the highway). I made it here every night after dinner during a week long business trip.
